  • Best place to escape! Out of people out of noise. Jungle track to kerachut beach for 2920m and 1 hour with normal speed
  • Very nice hike, pretty views. Bring enough water!
  • Interesting activity, release baby turtle into the sea
  • Beautiful scenery
  • A good trail that goes smoothly from the paving in the wild jungle trail. Met varanom and monkeys along the way.
